‘The Outsider’ Season 1 Recap:
The shocking part of THE OUTSIDER season one is how all evidence in the crime scene points to Terry as the perpetrator of the gruesome act. However, Terry claims to know nothing about Franklin’s death. The string of events that follow the death and investigation of Franklyn’s gruesome murder is even more interesting.
These events change the lives of everyone in the community. The whole town is thrown off balance by the mysterious happenings that follow the death of the local boy. Moreover, with the recent mysterious happenings in the town, everyone begins to think Terry might be innocent. They continue to suspect a lot of things – what if all the evidence against Terry was planted to frame him up. What if the real enemy is something bigger than they thought.
In an attempt to solve the mystery behind Franklin’s death and Terry’s claim of innocence, the police and investigating team is left in a state of confusion. What is more worrisome is the trail of evidence filled with a lot of coincidences.
THE OUTSIDER is a perfect combination of crime, fantasy, and drama that leaves you at the edge of your seat. One death leads to a whole lot of horrific events. More deaths, more mysteries, and a lot of questions to ask.
‘The Outsider’ Season 2 Release Date: When can we expect?
There is a lot of anticipation for the second season of ‘The Outsider’ of which there is no official release date at the moment. However, it is said that season one seemed to have taken almost 100% of the novel, but fans are eager to see what next Stephen King (Castle Rock Season 3) would cook up as the second season of The Outsider.
While anticipations are high on the second season of ‘The Outsider’, there’s no pressure on Stephen King for the second part. So, we will not be seeing a second season soon, probably due to the COVID-19 situation, but it seems highly probable that there will be a second season, hopefully in 2021. This is because season one ended in a little bit unresolved manner with a scene indicating that Holly is next in line for possession by El Cuco.
Sadly, the series may be canceled for second season. On November 2020, it was already announced that HBO canceled the show after its first season.
HBO stated unequivocally in their statement that season 2 of “The Outsider” will not be produced. According to sources, HBO decided against a second season of the horror crime drama ‘The Outsider’ after hearing the proposal for the second season. The pitch implied that the private investigator Holly Gibney’s life will be closely followed. Extending the plot beyond the original source material would have been a stretch, which may be why HBO decided to back off.
